Events for August 24, 2017
Call for Cast Members: Woodman Museum’s “Night at the Museum” event returns in October For its 5th annual re-enactment event, the Woodman Museum will present “More Voices from the Cemetery” on October 14-15, 2017 on the grounds of Dover’s picturesque and historic Pine Hill Cemetery. Approximately 60 cast members are being sought to act, lead tours, or provide event assistance during this 2-day production when dozens of famous (or infamous) Dover residents will rise from the dead at their gravesites to entertain you with details from their most interesting lives! All acting roles are for adults, but no acting experience is required! We are seeking individuals with an interest in bringing history to life, and in helping Dover’s oldest museum, now in its 101 st year. In two dozen scenes, laid out all over Pine Hill Cemetery, history will come to life in October during the 90-minute escorted tours of this burial ground that dates from 1731. More than 40 noted, nefarious, or notorious Dover citizens will come to life beside their headstones, regaling visitors with tales of mirth, woe, and amazement! Among the residents lifting their voices in the cemetery will be sea captains, business leaders, soldiers, politicians, ministers, lost lovers, and even a famous opera singer! For those thinking about participating, there will be a Cast Orientation Session on Thursday, August 24 at 6:30pm at the Museum’s Keefe House (15 Summer St.). You are invited to meet the production staff, ask questions, and talk with others who’ve participated in previous “Night at the Museum” events. After the orientation, you can decide if you’d like to sign on to the cast as a character, as a Tour Guide, or help out behind the scenes. Tickets for “More Voices from the Cemetery” will go on sale in September at the Woodman Museum and on its website. This is a family-friendly tour, suitable for all ages. Prices are $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12. For additional information and/or to volunteer with “More Voices from the Cemetery”, call the Woodman Museum at 603-742- 1038.
